National Self Build & Renovation Show – Preview
The National Self Build & Renovation Centre hosts three shows throughout the year taking place in January, May and October. These events support self-builders to make informed decisions about their future home. Sadly, following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic the May event was cancelled.
However, we are now pleased to announce that the National Self Build & Renovation Show is coming back to Swindon 16-18 October! Read our preview article for our top picks from the show!
SEMINARS AT THE NSBRC SHOW
From the 16th until the 18th of October, the National Self Build & Renovation Show will offer various seminars, 1:2:1 expert advice and case studies. The events will be split across two theatres: the Self Build Cinema and the Exhibitor Cinema.
The Self Build Cinema will cover the key topics every self-builder needs to know – along with some outstanding real-life Case Studies – in a set of pre-recorded 30-45 minute talks. The Exhibitor Cinema will present a series of talks hosted by the exhibitors.

A COVID SAFE EVENT
The NSBRC Show organisers have put in place special measures to ensure the centre and show safeguard the visitors, exhibitors and staff. They are working hard to ensure they comply with current guidelines and as such this show will be a little different from previous events.
In order to maintain social distancing, the capacity of the event was reduced and all attendees are required to book in advance on this occasion. There is also a limit of 2 adult members per household. If you are bringing children please ensure they remain with you at all times.
Visiting the National Self Build & Renovation Centre is beneficial for every person who wants to build their dream home.
In addition, The National Self Build and Renovation Show provides even more value and should be in the calendar of every conscious self-builder who want to prepare thoroughly for what will be the biggest investment in their life.
The NSBRC is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 – 17:30, Sunday 10:00 – 16:00.
